And, for inestimably valuable services rendered in the course of the preparation of the entire volume#To Leonard W. Bidwell and the RCA Victor Division of the Radio Corporation of America; Walter E. Green, A. J. Lindsley and the National Theatre Supply Division of National-Simplex-Bludworth, Inc.; Roger Whitney, and Patricia M. Whitney.

The preparation of this volume has not been easy, but through the cooperation of those already mentioned, and 0f the scores of' other scientists and engineers consulted in the course of the work, the task has been appreciably lightened, and it is with what we hope may be pardonable pride that this 1945 Edition of the THEATRE CATALOG is presented to the theatre industry of the world.

In the years to come the physical theatre will become more and more important in the amusement world. for, while people will yet come to see the screen attractions, it will be the remembered feeling of complete satisfaction that will keep them returning---or the equally well remembered feeling of complete dissatisfaction that will preclude repeat performances.

Accordingly, in this volume an effort has been made not only to chronicle the latest thoughts and ideas in maintaining present properties in their best condition, but also to set forth that which, in the not far distant future, should result in even better theatres.

As this volume has been the product of cooperation and mutual understanding, so

. in that spirit is it presented, with the realiza tion that, when all the facts are known, no problem is unsurmountable.
